MB3006: THE MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF THE CELL

30 credits

Level 3

First Sub Session

  • a course detailing for the first time how a cell really works; we reveal and explain how cell biology is governed by a cell's molecular biology and biochemistry; 
  • a course placing a high value on its teaching and learning; all lecture material supported by non-assessed workshops – your chance to team-work, ask questions and enjoy the science; 
  • contains an extended research practical; you carry out lab research to understand how cells responds to starvation stress, and write up in research paper format; 
  • we teach how to access the scientific literature and write successful essays, preparing you for Honours year
